3. TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
Thursdays present the greatest opportunities for consolidation and focus on goals as there are fewest distractions - no pressing tasks and the house to myself in the daytime. Reaffirming goals and evaluation of progress will definitely be happening today.
I am particularly pleased with my progress in mindfulness of late. When my mind runs off into nonexistent scenarios I am catching myself doing it quicker, and thus re-grounding quicker. I am also improving the periods of internal silence, but I want to make much more progress in this discipline.
I also need to review my marketing tactics and what I'm doing to make potential clients choose me above the local competition. After a period of distraction where I got absorbed into learning how to make my own animations, I am ready to move forward in a more time-balanced way.
